I found this post in Google Support Forums... this should answer your question about Google Maps and the BB Storm.

I just got back from Boston and used the BB Maps with the GPS turned on and it worked great. I had to wait for it to find the satellites in a few cases, but every time it found the satellites and it gave me the correct directions and I used the GPS navigation a couple times, but found that following the directions was actually the easiest.
Try it again. There is no need to use VZ Navigator unless you want true GPS-like features that talks to you. It is not worth the $10/month when I can get the directions using BB Maps, and the BB GPS if you want.

The link below should answer some questions regarding the BB Storm and Google Map GPS. Unfortunately, it doesn't look too good for Google Map fans.

It missed by small bit and has 5 to 6 satelites showing indoors on (maybe) the south side of home.
Sometimes does "searching for satelites".
I will try it with TomTom 910 next month when I get home.
Either compare co-ordinates or try bluetooth pairing.
Google Maps acts like it could work but totally loses on the accuracy front.

For some reason, if you use the VZ Navigator, it tends to grab control of the GPS and not let go. You have to be sure to "CLOSE" the VZ Nav to make the GPS available to other apps. I've had good results both with "BB maps" and "Google Maps", but the VZ Nav seems to have an edge on accuracy and features.
